My first challenge entry with Sigma 10-22. I dont think wide angle is really requried here, but I tried it and I liked the results. Will be happy as far as it scores above my mediocre average. I have very little hope for this one as all my entries where I have this model(myself) has bombed.

Good book. Face and shirt overexposed with just the right touch of humor.

Good idea. Focus seems to be more on the book than the face.

Great concept and "overexposure". I just wish the man was as sharp as the book - greater dof would have improved the overall look.

very good book!
I think this would have a better impact if the man was in focus as well as the book. As he's being lit, for me he is an important part of the image and so a greater DOF would have added impact

Nice take on the challenge. I would have liked a deeper depth of focus on this image (sharper eyes) but the shallow depth also works well. 7
